Frederick Long

Bank: Ulster Bank

Place of work: Head Office, Belfast

Died: 9 April 1943


Frederick Long was born on 9 May 1921, the son of William John and Emma Jane Long. In January 1940 he went to work for Ulster Bank at its head office in Belfast. A month later he moved to Dundalk branch, then back to head office in July 1941.


Just a few weeks later, on 27 August, Long left the bank to go on war service, joining the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve. Sergeant Long was killed when the bomber for which he was the navigator crashed in North Africa on 9 April 1943. He was 22 years old.


Frederick Long is commemorated on two memorials at Ulster Bank’s Belfast head office: its roll of honour for staff who served in the Second World War and its memorial for those who fell.
